Canaima National Park is spread over 3 million ha in south-eastern Venezuela along the border between Guyana and Brazil. Roughly 65% of the park is covered by table mountain (tepui) formations. The tepuis constitute a unique biogeological entity and are of great geological interest. The sheer cliffs and waterfalls, including the world's highest (1,000 m), form a spectacular landscape.

La colonia Tovar è un piccolo villaggio tedesco a latitudini

equatoriali, in Venezuela.

L’italiano Codazzi accompagnó la spedizione di un centinaio di emigranti

della Foresta Nera e fondó la cittadina in cima ad una montagna, con un

clima molto simile a quello tedesco. Adesso é ben collegata con Caracas

ma all’epoca era totalmente isolata, cosí che gli abitanti hanno

mantenuto la lingua, le tradizioni e la cultura di origine. Producono la

propria birra, sono bianchi e biondi ed hanno nomi tedeschi.

Es la joya arquitectónica de estilo barroco colonial de América más emblemática de Venezuela. Su nombre real es Iglesia Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepción.

 

Este bello templo se encuentra en el cerro El Vigía de la población de Píritu, al oeste del estado Anzoátegui, a solo 25 minutos de la capital de la región.

 

Es el atractivo turístico más emblemático de la referida localidad. Fue construida entre 1674 y 1745 bajo la tutela de Fray Salvador Romero. Abarca un área rectangular de casi cuarenta metros de largo por veinte de ancho. Su decoración y culminación se le atribuye a Fray Cristóbal Martínez

 

Tiene un campanario de tres niveles con una cúpula piramidal. Está dividida en tres naves por ocho pilares unidos por arcos de medio punto que sostienen la mayor parte del techo de madera y las lámparas de hierro forjado. Su fachada llama la atención por ser de paredes completamente blancas con puertas de madera.

 

Las más de 25 imágenes de santos allí expuestos en su mayoría datan del año 1975. La figura más representativa es la Inmaculada Concepción, a quien le rinden homenaje cada 8 de diciembre.

 

En la capilla derecha está la imagen de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores y en la capilla izquierda se encuentra San Juan Evangelista, María Auxiliadora y El Nazareno.

A couple days ago I saw a really cool photo of the flag by Alfon, and I remembered I had this one that I liked but never uploaded.

 

Some info about the flag.

En estos días Alfon subió una foto de la bandera que le quedó buenísima, y me acordé que tenía esta que me gustaba pero nunca la había subido.

 

Un poco de información sobre la bandera.

Vintage Slide scan. Rootes Dealership in Caracas, Venezuela. Late 60s early 70s perhaps. Hillman Humber Cars.

Caracas the capital of Venezuela and recently voted the 3rd most dangerous city in the world purchased 450 Leyland nationals in the late 1970s for the state owned capital operation. Not too far away Trinidad also took a large number including the later mk2. In September 1998 without too much information about them, long before the internet became a useful source of research I set off to try and find a few. The buses had been dogged by political issues before many turned a wheel, some never did.

This was basically a private operator who had managed to acquire one from the clutches of the Government and was operating on a city route within the capital photographed on 01st September 1998. There were others including, the suburban metro train system, which had some re-engined with DAF units and used on feeder routes to the outer stations from densely populated housing areas. This example pictured retained its Leyland engine though. I recall after taking this photograph, running over and jumping on board. After waving a couple of Bolivars at the driver, off we set through the city, then onto a fast dual carriage way before touring the outer suburbs of the city. No idea where I was actually going around 3 hours later I ended up back at the same spot I had boarded. Mission accomplished !! On leaving the vehicle I shouted " Gracias " to the driver.....the reply came back " Ese tío está loco " which to be fair...is probably right.

Esta foto me vino en una de las tantas manifestaciones políticas de Venezuela. De pronto la chica me mira y posa. Todo fue rapidísimo. Es bonita y lo sabe.

 

Cette photo m'est venue dans une des plusieurs manifs du Vénézuéla. Soudain, la jeune fille me regarde et pose. Tout a été si rapide. Elle est jolie et elle le sait.

 

This pic came to me in one of the many Venezuelan political rallies. All of a sudden, the girl looks at me and poses. It all happened in a flash. She's pretty and she knows it.

Memories of better times in Venezuela.

 

Somehow, Aeropostal ("Alas de Venezuela") is still in business, though it has ceased operations at least once in the past. Caudillo Hugo Chávez smirks from the Aeropostal Web site, perhaps because foreign airlines have over $3 billion in revenues from ticket sales trapped in Venezuela by the foreign currency rules. Many carriers have suspended service.

 

The plane shown here has the registration number YV-C-AMI. I found a photo of an LAV Constellation with the registration YV-C-AMI when it was brand new outside the assembly plant in Burbank, California. www.abpic.co.uk/photo/1321010/ The lovely Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation in the photo was delivered to LAV on August 21, 1957, serving until it was sold in 1963. It was later registered as N9746Z and N173W with Flying Tiger Line.

 

Oddly, the drawing on the tag doesn't show the Super Connie's wingtip tanks that were its most distinctive feature. It also shows the round windows of an earlier version of the Constellation, perhaps the L-749, not the rectangular windows of the Super Constellation, a later version.

 

So I'm guessing LAV might have bought an L-749 (the version with round windows and no wing tanks) registered it as YV-C-AMI, used it as the model for the artwork on the tag, then sold the L-749 to a carrier in another country and re-used the YV-C-AMI registration number on its hot new Super Connie. Either this luggage tag was made before LAV bought the Super Constellation, or LAV didn't create a new tag once they'd upgraded.

 

But wait, there's more!

 

The LAV Super Connie YV-C-AMI was the plane that flew LAV's last scheduled service from Europe to Venezuela on November 29, 1960. The government canceled LAV's European service to stop the hemorrhaging of public funds at a time of economic insecurity. Between 1952 and 1960, LAV lost $17 million dollars on its foreign routes.

 

A Web entry that commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the end of LAV's European service states:

 

"The flight that left Rome and stopped in Rome landed at Maiquetía at dawn. It was under the command of an experienced crew who, since the fall of 1953, had served LAV's European route as well as flights to New York, Bogotá, Lima, Panamá, Miami and Havana. Lisbon, Rome and Madrid were LAV's transatlantic destinations."

 

"Those men and women were Aurelio Valery, Domingo Urdaneta, Joaquín Villasmil, Gastón Dupuy, Juan Bautista Pedrosa, José Vicente De Armas, Miguel Rada, Eugenio Manuel, Norberto Tomás González, Luis Ramón Chávez and Enma Josefina Martínez."

Some of these aviators, graduates of the Miguel Rodríguez flight school, went on to pilot the jets of Venezolana Internacional de Aviación S. A. (Viasa) when that airline was formed in the early '60s to take over the foreign routes of LAV and Avensa.
